Menopause Power Bundle

Not sure yet...

Ive been taking the menopause bundle for a week or so have not noticed any difference & am not a fan of the strange taste so struggle to drink it. Will persist for a bit longer as it did work for my colleague.

Feeling energized!!!

I am only at the end of week one but I am enjoying this program, I feel that I have much more energy than before and feel less bloated. It would be great if substitutes were listed in the recipes for high allergy foods or foods out of season. For example, I am anaphylactic to walnuts so have been leaving them out but not sure which nuts would be a good replacement. I am looking forward to next weeks plan.

So happy to hear you're feeling more energised. Food plays a HUGE part on the way we feel. Thanks for the feedback on substitution or foods out of season - I will have to take a look at updating the program. For walnuts I would substitute them for another nut (if you can eat them) or some avocado. Good luck with the rest of the program - would love to see your results!

Fantastic Product

I've used the menopause bundle for a month now and I have not had one hot flush and my joints seem to be a little less achy.

This makes us very happy to hear. This is the reason why we launched these products, to provide natural healthy product that work. :)

Love this product

I use it every morning with Aloe Vera juice and I feel like it really makes a difference

Sounds delicious with Aloe Vera juice, will have to give it try! Thanks for the review Karen. :)

Definitely Helpful

Been taking it for 3 weeks now and my night hot flushes are defiantly less frequent plus less severe. Have not had a hot flush during the day so far so bonus. I also feel way way less brain fog. Going to be continuing to take this product as it really has helped. Also I used just cows milk for both and it still works well for me. If you use the Soy & Almond Milk as suggested the results maybe even better.

Fantastic news, really glad to hear its working for you :)

Sugar content in milk chocolate versus 85% dark chocolate

Sugar content in milk chocolate versus 85% dark chocolate | kulture.store

Did you know that chocolate is good for your health and has a lot of proven health benefits? This well loved treat is popular not just during holidays but all year round - with the industry making $21.1 Billion in sales in 2017. That number is expected to keep growing with the increase in growth expected from premium products and dark chocolate product sales.

Everyonelikeschocolate, most peopleloveit. And why not? It’s delicious! Giving it makes you thoughtful and well liked, receiving it makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Eating it gives a tickle to your brain’s pleasure centres that makes you want more.

Or that could just be the sugar talking. You see, there is a big difference between the different major different types of chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate. One major difference is the sugar content.

Dark chocolate contains less sugar and no dairy

For some milk chocolate arguably tastes much better than dark chocolate. It is sweeter, creamier, and goes down well with no bitter taste. Real dark chocolate, on the other hand, has a slightly bitter taste, however I recommend starting with a 70% dark chocolate before launching into say an 85%. Dark chocolate is made with a high percentage of cacao (which is required to be at the very least, 35% of cocoa solids). It’s also made with very small amounts of sugar and no milk products are required to be added. Perfect if dairy upsets your tummy.

More Cacao, more healthier

Milk chocolate contains less of the original cocoa bean than dark chocolate. It is most often diluted with sugar, cream, and milk solids to achieve that sweet, creamy taste we’ve all come to love. The lower cacao solids content also makes it somewhat less nutritious than its dark counterpart. The cacao solids give chocolate its nutritional edge by containing key compounds such as Phenylethylamine, Flavonoids and Theobromine. So the less cocoa solids it has, the less of these nutritional compounds are available.

Milk chocolate contains more sugar

Milk chocolate has more sugar, thus more carbs and more calories than dark chocolate. 100g of milk chocolate has a whopping 52g of sugar, whereas Lindt 78% dark chocolate has 18g of sugar. The sugar content in milk chocolate vary among brands. Here’s a snapshot of the sugar content of some popular brands:

  • Snickers bar (50g): 6.45 teaspoons of sugar
  • Mars bar (58g): 6.51 teaspoons of sugar
  • Milky Way bar (52.2g): 7.75 teaspoons of sugar
  • Twix bar (57g): 6.12 teaspoons of sugar
  • Milk chocolate M&M's packet (60g): 7.75 teaspoons of sugar


Dark chocolate is simply better for you

Dark chocolate has fewer carbs because it has half the sugar (sometimes not even), and has four times the fibre. A 100-gram bar of dark chocolate with 70–85% cocoa contains: 11 grams of fibre, 67% of the RDI for iron, 58% of the RDI for magnesium, 89% of the RDI for copper, 98% of the RDI for manganese, and has plenty of potassium, phosphorus, zinc, and selenium. It is ultimately better for you than milk chocolate by a long shot.

Not all dark chocolate is equal

If you're looking for a relatively healthy dark chocolate, you can't go past Lindt 70%, 78% or 85%. The sugar content in these are significantly lower than the milk chocolate alternatives. 

  • 70% dark chocolate Lindt (50g): 3.62 teaspoons of sugar
  • 78% dark chocolate Lindt (50g): 2.25 teaspoons of sugar
  • 85% dark chocolate Lindt (50g): 1.37 teaspoons of sugar

Be careful of the Lindt flavours range such as dark chocolate with orange, chilli, sea salt, lime, coconut etc., as these have much higher sugar content of approximately 5.48 teaspoons of sugar which is similar to a Snickers bar.

Benefits of Green Tea Matcha

Matcha contains the nutrients of the entire tea leaf. This means it yields a greater amount of caffeine and antioxidants than what you typically find in green tea. In fact, studies show that one cup of Matcha tea has the antioxidant equivalent of 10 cups of brewed green tea and has 20x more antioxidants than pomegranates or blueberries.
